"Amazing Results!"

"JACKIE TOOK THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND MY NEEDS AND THEN PROPOSED A PLAN using a combination of hypnosis and EFT that gave me amazing results!  She is professional, supportive, and can even support remote work.  I highly recommend working with her."

—Michael F. in Columbia, Missouri

Successfully Stopped Smoking

"YOU SAVED MY LIFE...AND MADE ME AND MY FAMILY VERY HAPPY!  Jackie, there is not a way to express my gratitude for what you have done for me and my family. I am so happy that I found you! Thank you for saving my life! Thank you for making me feel so proud of myself again! Thank you for helping me to get up everyday and not want to smoke at all!!!As you know I am a breast cancer survivor and it was so embarrassing to continue to smoke knowing that my chances of my cancer coming back was a risk if I did not quit. But it is a drug. It is addicting and I could not find the willpower to quit on my own. Literally, thank God for hypnosis! I feel like a million bucks! Smoke free now for 78 days!! Woo-hoo!!!" 

—Karen Raithel in Jefferson City, Missouri

Passed Medical Board Exam

"I CONTACTED JACKIE FOR HELP WITH PREPARING FOR MY FAMILY PRACTICE MEDICAL BOARD CERTIFICATION EXAM. I had been anxious and unable to concentrate [when I tried to take the exam earlier]. Through phone sessions and recorded playbacks I was able to relax, focus and PASS MY EXAM!"

—Dr. D. in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Overcame Test Anxiety

"THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME TO ACHIEVE MY GOAL OF PASSING THE STATE BOARD OF NURSING EXAM AND GETTING MY RN LICENSE. It had been such a long road for me and was hard at times to keep pushing forward. [Before seeing you] I took the test five times over a three year period. Each time I took it I would get nervous, upset and sick to my stomach. I also had trouble focusing and concentrating when I was reading and studying, always worried if I would pass my exam. I almost passed it each time but could not seem to get over that hurdle. Jackie, you were able to take all that away from me when you hypnotized me. Thank you for caring and taking the time to understand my situation. It was awesome that you gave me a CD of our session that I could listen to every night before bed. I was actually able to be excited when I scheduled my test and was able to focus and remain calm while taking it. FINALLY! Passing my nursing exam on the sixth time thanks to your help should be proof enough that what you do works. At least me and my family know it does and we thank you so much for helping me get my RN license!"

Found Joy and Direction Again

"WHEN I FOUND JACKIE, I WAS STRUGGLING IN MY LIFE. I had a great career, great family, married with a house full of kids, but yet with all the success, I was struggling to keep my life in order. I felt like I should have had more accomplished by now, have more to show for it and certainly, should have been filled with joy, but I wasn’t. Even though I showed up to my life every day and persevered, I just couldn’t find myself. I didn’t know who I was or what direction my life was going. I had been struggling with anxiety, depression , insomnia, weight gain and feeling like I was powerless to make any changes or do anything that would get me started in the right direction. My psychiatrist suggested I seek counseling, but I had tried that before and never could find a connection with a therapist. I came across Jackie’s listing in the Psychology Today index of therapists in my area—and once I read her short bio, I knew I had to call her. After working with Jackie, through hypnotherapy, I now know all of the things that have been weighing me down for years: the doubts, fears, emotions and unhealthy thinking that had led me down a path of unhappiness and lost identity. I continue to work with Jackie on the litany of problem areas that I have and the progress I personally have made, as well as the empowerment and direction I feel, is staggering! After our first session together, I had the best week I can remember. I had immense energy, clarity, direction and joy. I know that life’s challenges and trials won’t end, but now I feel like I have the tools to deal with them. I will never allow myself to be so off-center and without joy again. It has been incredibly liberating and empowering to realize that I have the power within me to bring about colossal changes in my life, that I had conceded were out of my reach [before I met Jackie]."

Stopped Smoking, Reduced Stress and Anxiety

"I AM PLEASED TO SAY THAT HYPNOTHERAPY HAS DONE SO MUCH FOR ME! ​Over the course of several one-on-one 90 minute sessions with Jackie I have noticed tremendous changes in my day-to-day life. I used to be someone with major stress and anxiety problems. That was one of the hardest things I was coping with and not able to control. I can't express how much less stressed I am now after doing the hypnosis. I'd leave Jackie's office feeling refreshed and relaxed and able to focus on my daughter's needs as well as mine. I have quit smoking as well. I am able to sit down and read a book to my daughter and be completely focused on her and not stressed about things that really aren't even important enough to stress about. Jackie takes the time to listen to what her client wants to work on and is dedicated to scheduling appointments that best fit her clients' schedules."
